    I have been working at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very strong skill set in ICD Continuous improvement mentality High standards for success Great place to grow skill set Solid focus on new product development and customer growth

    Cons

    Legacy management issues Partially based on commodities, which can be volatile

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying to improve the company with the steps you've been taking in Hoffman Estates. But please realize that there are many re-orgs to optimize performance and that leaves folks at time uneasy about how they may fit into the organization moving forward.

    Pros

    Family Friendly Employee Friendly - Do a lot for the employees - EAC - Safety Committee Seems to care about employees & their families as well as their time!

    Cons

    SAP - Needs improvement in most areas - Have started to see some improvements which is good but over all the Technical side seems to be outdated and have to fight to get something simple.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on SAP implementations and upgrades as well as equipment upgrades. Make sure employees have a clear career path and job responsibilities. Continue working together with other depts.

    I have been working at Tate & Lyle full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable company now that right-sizing and movement of resources from Decatur to Poland has been completed.

    Cons

    Decatue is depressing place to work, although cost of living is very very attractive. I would call it a cultural wasteland as the nearest hot spot of intelligencia is 40 miles away in Springfield, Champaign or Bloomington.

    Advice to Management

    True-up human resource related benefits between the UK and US. There is a strong belief here in the US that UK employees are better compensated and have much better PTO policies and we in the US have to pick up the slack.
